Earlier Rating: 7/22/2013 Total Score: 4.1
Draft at Pottstown. Poured hazy deep golden with off-white lacy head. Nose was New Zealand hoppy, and I understand they used one of the experimentals in this, plus Columbus and another hop or two. The nose was tropical fruit, peppery spicy, pale malt. The taste popped, with up front tropical fruit hops, lemongrassy pale malt, and mid-paate fruitiness and spicy peppery notes. This one is delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really solid IPA I enjoyed on draft at the Wegman’s Pub in Collegeville. It was advertised, as another rater mentioned, as Tail Chaser. The beer poured a bright, light golden color with a minimal white head. The head did leave some nice lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose featured some really nice floral and spicy hops, along with some light caramel and toasted barley tones. The flavors mirror the aroma, with plenty of spicy, dry and bitter hops with some light fruit flavor. The body is balanced by a nice profile of bready, light yeasty and slightly sweet malt. This is a very good candidate for a session IPA, with some billiards or poker involved.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: Cask at Max’s on Broadway. It was labeled as Sly Fox Tail Chaser IPA, but this is the only reference about it I can find on the interwebs. It pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. Slightly resinous nose. Light citrus and pine on the palate. Light to medium body with a medium, bitter finish. Decent if predictable.
